You Are Loved
Parenting is hard work, but you’ve got this!
Children need to know they are loved. When they’re sure that they are safe, secure, and cared for, they’re more able to remain optimistic in the face of adversity. Offering reassurance throughout the day—especially on hard days—can help your child bounce back and strengthen bonds of trust.
You can assure your child he’s loved (and build his sense of confidence while you’re at it) when you:
- acknowledge his big feelings,
- remind him of all that he’s capable of,
- encourage him to keep working hard to accomplish his goals,
- and tell him you love him.
